Fujifilm X100V with old NP-W126S Battery and Fujifilm X-T4 with Completely New Battery

Share

Hey folks,

I just finished a dinner with friends, but before I go to bed, I thought I could publish a rumor that has just been confirmed to me, and answers one of the questions you had regarding the Fujifilm X100V.

Some of you asked in the comments to previous rumors, if the Fujifilm X100V will have the brand new battery of the Fujifilm X-T4.

Well, according to our sources, the Fujifilm X100V will have the classic old Fujifilm NP-W126S battery.

So, the brand new battery (which I remind will not even be the GFX NP-T125 battery) will be reserved for the Fujifilm X-T4 only, and of course only later find its way to future camera bodies.

Fujifilm X-Pro3 Firmware Update 1.02 Visible but Not Available

Share

FR-reader Lars contacted me and wrote:

Today I got my X-Pro3 back from Fuji Service with a new firmware update vers. 1.02. That update was actually released already on 16. January regarding the Fuji Website. But when you click on it you go to the vers. 1.01 that was released in December and the file is the same too.

I did check, and indeed, on the firmware list page, Fujifilm mentiones X-Pro3 firmware 1.02 as released on January 16. As you can see from the screenshot above, it says:

The phenomenon that in rare cases, a freeze could occur is fixed

But once you click and enter on the X-Pro3 firmware download page here, all you see is firmware 1.01.

My guess? Fujifilm will release another firmware update, maybe ver.1.1, which will incorporate the bug fixed with 1.02 as well as other issues.

DPRTV Compares Fujinon XF 35mm f/2 vs Fujinon XC 35mm f/2

Share

Along with the Fujifilm X-T200, Fujifilm just announced the affordable Fujinon XC35mm f/2.

We did compare both lenses already by the specs sheets, and we saw that they are basically the same, except for the fact that the Fujinon XC 35mm f/2 has no aperture ring, no weather sealing and is made mainly out of plastic.

The good news: it should optically perform like the best selling lens in 2019, the Fujinon XF 35mm f/2.

Really?

Well, DPReview TV tested them both, and here is what they say:

  • XC35mm is lighter and more affordable
  • autofocus motor is the same. Both lenses focus fast
  • sharpness is identical in center and in corners. Very good performing lenses
  • bokeh identical
  • fringing identical
  • flare and stunstars are identical
  • skin tones identical
  • XC lens is a bit lighter, but not a difference that is worth to go for XC lens
  • XF lens has a classier look, weather sealing, metal, and aperture ring
  • XC lens comes without lens hood
  • XC lens costs half the money
  • with the extra $200 for the XF 35mmF2 you get quite a lot

Fuji’s best seller now got even more affordable, but personally I’d spend those extra 200 bucks all day long, for having a more solid, weather resistant lens with aperture ring.

But I get the point of it: now and entry level kit with a fixed prime lens got even more affordable.
